Intercellular communication in atherosclerosis

Angelillo-Scherrer, Anne
Published in Physiology. 2009, vol. 24, p. 36-44
Abstract Cell-to-cell communication is a process necessary for physiological tissue homeostasis and appears often altered during disease. Gap junction channels, formed by connexins, allow the direct intercellular communication between adjacent cells. After a brief review of the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis, we will discuss the role of connexins throughout the different stages of the disease.
